I use linuxpluginwrapper-20040111 on -STABLE and RELENG_5_1 boxes with no
As instructed during the install of linuxpluginwrapper, you will need to
patch your system sources and install rtld-elf:
# cd /usr/src
# patch -p0 < /foo/libmap_4stable.diff
# cd libexec/rtld-elf
# make clean all && sudo make install
The "-p0" is needed or the build borks. This instruction has recently been
comitted to the port. See my -ports post.
You'll also need to create /etc/libmap.conf as Brian described and
instructed at the end of the port install.

If building from ports, your plugins will go in (or be linked from)
/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/ (or hwerever your X11BASE is). No need to
manually populate the browser-specific plugins directory.
Now all I want is someone to do the work for lib/browser_extensions/!
